In order to feel a sense of purpose, we need to feel that we have a sense of who we are and where our interests and passions lie. Sadly, this is not the case for many individuals, and can lead to a life of feeling empty and a lack of direction. One additional problem is that the longer this experience persists, the more that we start to believe that this is who we are, and that we cannot do things differently. Thankfully, it is never too late to change, and psychotherapy can help us to do so.
